This annual Symposium focuses on the reception of Greek and Roman tragedy and comedy, exploring the afterlife of these ancient dramatic texts through re-workings by both writers and practitioners across all genres and periods. Speakers from a number of countries will give papers on the reception of Greek and Roman drama. This year’s guest respondents will be Yana Zarifi (Thiasos Theatre Company) and Margaret Coldiron (Director and specialist in Asian performance). Among those present at this year’s symposium will be Prof. Edith Hall, Prof. Oliver Taplin, and Prof. Fiona Macintosh. The symposium will conclude on the second day, in Oxford, with a discussion and performance of Gardzienice’s Pythian Oratorio.

Postgraduates from around the world working on the reception of Greek and Roman drama are welcome to participate, as are those who have completed a doctorate but not yet taken up a post. The symposium is open to speakers from different disciplines, including researchers in the fields of Classics, modern languages and literature, and theatre and performance studies. Undergraduates are very welcome to attend.

There will be no registration fee. Some travel bursaries will be available this year – please indicate if you would like to be considered for one of these.
